Google maps shows a very large building that spans 628-630 Moore Street. I doubt if this was the theater.

Today The Woodcraft Industry Inc. occupies this location (624 Moore Street) but somewhere among this mismatch of buildings was the 300 seat Becker Theater, a silent era movie house operated by the Becker Brothers. Louis Fein was the architect and the theater existed from 1905 to 1927. There were alterations to the theater in 1913.

Does anyone know what make and model theater organ was installed in this theater and when?
